7 Super shots competition of HostelBookers, our contribution

One of my blog friends Red Nomad Oz, an experienced traveller from Australia wrote an article about 7 super shots, a competition of HostelBookers. ‘I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots‘.

In this game you are requested to nominate 5 bloggers to participate and add a link to their blog. My nominations are based on the most active commentators of April on my blog and can be found below, I hope they will participate. If any of my other blog commentators would like to participate, please write this in the comments and I will add your blog link to this article. Because HostelBookers is about travelling, we have selected our photo’s a few different countries. I hope you will enjoy this and I am looking forward to see what my blog friends are going to write.

A photo that…takes my breath away
This photo is literally taken our breath away because we just climbed the Great Wall in the surroundings of Beijing, China. One of the world wonders.

A photo that…makes me laugh or smile
A girl posing in Yogi Yogi park in Tokyo, Japan. Young people come to this park on Sundays to get attention and their pictures taken by tourists. It is a kind of colourful competition. Funny people in Yogi Yogi Park.

A photo that…makes me dream
Nature can be fascinating. That’s me, in the Antilope Slot Canyon near Lake Powel, USA. The unlimmted beauty of nature makes me dream away of new explorings.

A photo that…makes me think
Cedar Point in Sandusky, the State of Ohio, USA. Is the best amusement park in the world for Rollercoasters. This is Millenium Force making his way up on the 310 foot high lift hill. Each time when I go up in this coaster, I am thinking: What the hell am I doing here?

A photo that…makes my mouth water
Belgium is the country of good restaurants, in the two star Michelin restaurant Hostelerie St. Nicolas in Elverdinge, we tasted a fabulous pigeon.

A photo that…tells a story
When you get married, you tell the story of your life to your partner. Pictures show how happy you are on this day. Walking through Toronto, I had this fantastic photo opportunity. The architecture in combination with the young maried couple is special.

A photo that…I am most proud of
This photo of the Sheik Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is one of my favourites. I like the interior shot towards the main entrance of the Mosque.
